Transformer

by Qing

Original Idea: Can we make a bacterium that when put into other bacteria, it can change their properties to its own property?

To be simple, the property can be "plamid". In further step, we may change their genomic infomation.

Tutorial 3

by Wisely

Binomial Distribution, Gaussion Distribution, Markov Process

Read-out System

for Randomizer Project

by Jean

We can find a heterodimer that is exogeneous and can be expressed in E.coli. Applied to Guangnan's model of generating randomness by overlapping promoters, we can put monomer A and monomer B on each side of that promoter to represent outcome signal 0 and 1. Then in the second position, we put them reversely.

First Position  ----Monomer A (as 0)----promoter----Monomer B (as 1)----
Second Position ----Monomer A (as 1)----promoter----Monomer B (as 0)----

Then only when we get 0 and 0 or 1 and 1 in both positions, we can have both Monomer A and Monomer B, which can be designed to give a signal.

Stripe Pattern

by Jingjing

Stripes from Developmental Biology, adapted from Drosophila

3 patterns:

  1. CDE -- 3 areas (firstly by gradient of A to B)
  2. hair distributed evenly?
  3. concentric circles (nutrition)
